A Taste of Art: Drypoint Etching (20th Feb)

Rural Arts Thirsk
Wednesday 20th February

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique, in which an image is incised into a plate with a hard pointed needle. In this workshop, you will look to nature to create a printing plate from perspex which will be used to make a small edition of prints approx. A5 size using the etching press and a range of coloured oil-based inks.

Turn a drawing into a print or create a drawing within the session. Resources will be available throughout the workshop. All materials are included, however, please bring an apron. 

Suitable for all abilities. 


Please note: we do not issue physical tickets. Please use your email order confirmation as proof of purchase.

Wednesday 20th February (10.30am-12.30pm) The Courthouse, Thirsk Tickets Available: 5
Ticket(s) 18.00

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please let us know if you have any special learning or access requirements prior your attendance to the workshop.
